I am a big time BBQ enthusiast and I am always looking for new spots in New England to try. I was just wondering how good LJ's is. I've spent a lot of time down south and own a couple of smokers so I don't want to waste my time on mediocre bbq. Also, most bbq places tend to do certain kinds of meat better than others so what do you recommend there?
I lived in the South for a number of years and there really isn't any place in RI that measures up to a top of the line BBQ in GA or NC.
That being said, I like LJ's brisket. Thei pulled pork is too heavy for my taste. Their collards are really great, though pricey given the size of the portion.
I had the "pulled pork" the only time I've been, and it was not what I think of as pulled pork. As Frobisher said, it's heavy, and I also found it dry and a bit tough. The coleslaw seemed similarly off to me.
I should go back and give them another chance, but I'm not holding my breath until I make it back.
